Today is my one-week anniversary of living in Melbourne!
Many people have no idea what I have been up to and it will probably be pretty hard to put it all into words, but I’ll try my best to describe my current situation!
So health-wise, I am sick. I have a runny nose, a sore throat, and body shivers all over. I’m currently hunched over my laptop crossed-legged on a rolly chair wearing a set of teddy-bear pyjamas that I borrowed from my aunty. Layered on top is a thick cotton white and blue bathrobe that I also borrowed from aunty (she is too sweet!). I’ve only been sick for a couple of days now, so luckily I spent the other days checking out the city.
During the past six days, I visited large metropolitan malls, sipped on cups of cappuccinos in trendy cafés, visited family friend’s businesses (bakeries and retail stores), met dozens of great people, and even made a trip to the hospital.
I realized I don’t have that tourist instinct where all I want to do is take pictures. Even when I do take pictures, I neglect the camera I bought (whoops) and just use my Windows 8 phone (Lumia 710) that I borrowed from Brian. However, a blog ain’t a blog without some decent pictures so here are some shots I found on my camera:
Here are some shots from the Lumia 710:
To summarize, Melbourne is a HUGE city and I still have not visited most of the tourist attractions. Luckily I’m here for another four months so I will be able to check out everything this city has to offer (or as much as I can!).
